As I sit here, coffee in hand, still in my PJs, and contemplating this post, the corners of my mouth turn up and I chuckle to myself.
I was up wayyyyy past my bedtime last night and my eyezz are a bit tired this morning.
Regardless of the lack of sleep, I was having a wonderful time chatting with a fellow blogger.
A Kindred Spirit.
I have introduced him on my blog before, and you may have seen some of his comments sprinkled throughout my postings.
Mirage Chopper, the author of Expressions of Color, and you can find him on my sidebar.
A brilliant writer and artist, who expresses from his core.
Anyway, while chatting, he was updating the profile of his blog, under
'View my Complete Profile'.
There's a section on that profile which Blogger poses a question for you to answer. Mine asks something about 'My Cat's Safety School is....'
Mirage was fiddling around with his and decided to refresh the page so Blogger would post a different question for him to answer. Waaa-laaaa.....the next one to pop up...
"Compose the lyrics to a new national anthem that features an animal sound at least once: "
So, together re-wrote our National Anthem, and chose to use Cows and a Mooo in it! (CowtownCuse....I hope you are reading this!)
It was difficult at times, but quite amusing none the less. The original that we had, looked like this:
Cow Spangled Banner
Jose can you see, that cow jumping over the fence?
What so proudly he sells, all the crack by twilight.
His tech-9 and extra clips gleaming.
All the immigrant cows screaming,
“Mooo!” through the night…
And the purple pimp cow was still there.
And the good cows used nair
On the purple cow’s short hair
That left razor stubble in the night
And a shitload of milk spilling
Oh say do those cows ever tip over at night,
Over the land of the free range cows
And the George Foreman grill
~Chopper & Greeneyezz
We finally had completed it....he went and copied & pasted it in the correct area and went to save it when.......
a note popped up saying it could only be 400 characters long!!!!! UGH!!!!
Determined, we both cut, minced, diced, and chopped, 'till we were able to get it at a length that Blogger would accept! This was no easy feat either! Some of the words we had to change to make it shorter, gave it a Rapper kind of feel to it!
The way it's currently set up, the structure and spaces need to be tweaked, and Mirage said he may play with it for a bit.
If interested, check out his page, which is wonderful, and then click onto "View my Complete Profile" to see our finished work.
Thank you MirageChopper, ursentiment!

"He that is thy friend indeed,
He will help thee in thy need:
If thou sorrow, he will weep;
If thou wake, he cannot sleep:
Thus of every grief in heart
He with thee does bear a part.
These are certain signs to know
Faithful friend from flattering foe."
